From Abraham, journeying from one land in search of another, to modern travellers, Jews have traversed countries and continents.

Jeremy Leigh explored Jewish travel writing from sources as divergent as the Bible to Sholem Aleichem and Joseph Roth. He also spoke of his own amazing discoveries in unexpected parts of the world.
